My Favourite Brussels anecdote
When I was in-house, Syngenta was unknown in Brussels. I developed a strong narrative around innovation and sustainability, including proof points and examples from the company’s CSR and product stewardship programme. Then I met with stakeholders. I was so passionate about my work that one day, I was asked which NGO I was representing.
